Outline

The government system in Ghana has central government institutions and its local government, which structures regions and districts (Metropolitan, Municipal and District). The Office of the Head of the Local Government Service (OHLGS) under the Office of the President has once developed operational manuals both of records management and fixed assets, however, they are not implemented in local government institutions. Many institutions do not completely store important records and update fixed assets registers periodically. 

Strengthening the capacity of local government effecting the administrative decentralization is an urgent issue, especially the development of the implementation model of records management and fixed assets management including operational manual revision. The project develops a unified implementation model of records management and fixed assets management countrywide and supports the capacity building of local government officers in a way that the manual is revised and disseminated.
